After 35 years in architecture, I’m asking a new question… Are we trying to solve climate destabilization with the same thinking that created it?


  • Viewing the built environment more holistically
  • Finding better language for our messaging
  • Making “Embodied Energy” a concept everyone understands
  • Exploring the interconnections between medicine, building design, and agriculture
  • Creating a greater awareness of our relationship to nature and its impact on environmental degradation
  • Questioning what’s essential for human life and what’s extraneous
  • Searching for a sustainable new “normal”
  • Allowing myself the time to give back
